Reupholstery of rocking chair

We recently had an interesting project to work on. We were brought a unique rocking chair frame to reupholster.

While this isn’t a standard design, we were able to create a new seat and back to bring back this very comfortable chair.

New Sofa and Loveseat Construction details

A recent sofa and loveseat project allows us to show you some of the details that go into the making of an MBU Interiors product.

Our frames are handcrafted using plywood and pine. This allows us to create an incredibly strong frame using interlocking joints. MBU has never had a frame fail in 40 years of furniture construction.

We hand sew the seat deck and seat roll (5 inches back from the front of the seat and under the cushion) to the springs. This allows a dip  in the fill to allow the crown of the seat to fit into perfectly for a more finished look and to keep the cushions from sliding.

The foam in a sofa or loveseat comes in a variety of densities that allow for different levels of compression for comfort and support. At MBU Interiors, we use different densities of foam in the seat cushions and the back of the sofa. Unlike some other companies who would simply use loose fill in their sofa backs, we us foam in the back and then cover it to keep it in place. Additionally, we use back springs under the foam for additional comfort and durability. Normally, you do not see that kind of construction in a sofa until you pass into the $2400 range. Depending on the fabric selection, we will be less than half of that.
